Has anyone successfully fit a nauti with 2 radians 3 across in the 3rd row of a grand caravan?
I bought my oldest a Monterey to fit with 2 radians. She can't do it up and is uncomfortable.
She slouches and the belt hits her neck even after I have adjusted it with her sitting properly.
There is also not much room for either of us to do up the seat belt.
I am so mad at my pregnancy brain. I thought she was 58 lbs and she is actually only 52.8!
Not sure what to do now.

Which direction are those Radians facing?   The third row of a Caravan has only one top tether, which means only one forward facing seat can go back there.

 

Why are you concerned about her weight being 52 lbs versus 58 lbs?  

 

What are the ages and sizes of all children riding in the vehicle?

I thought she was 58lbs and would only have another 7 or so puonds to go in a harnessed seat. If I had known her real weight I would have bought her a radian right along with her brothers.

 

I am having additional tethers installed in my third row to accomodate the extra seats there.

 

I have dd1 almost 7 52 lbs and quite short. Was harnessed in a nauti until I found out her top tether was attached to a cargo hook.

DS1 just turned 5  37 lbs and a little on the short side.

DS2 almost 2  27 lbs and a little on the short side. Currently Rf in a trufit.

DD2 is due right around Christmas and will be going in a graco snugride 35.

 

Right now only the booster and one radian is installed in the third row with DS2 in the middle row trufit.

 

Thanks

If you want  to keep your oldest in a booster I'd try the turbobooster.  It's narrower than the monterrey and might work better in that position.  Have her sit in it at the store and see if she finds it comfortable or not.


Happily married to my dh, mama to ds1 (01/2005), ds2 (07/2007)  and dd (07/2009).
